International Women’s Day

“If we want to change the present state of female representation in the advertising industry, we need to start by hiring women.”

On International Women’s Day 2021, Audrey and I launched a repository of women creative portfolios to help them, quite simply, be found. We highlighted their portfolios on two websites - & so that agencies and recruiters can easily search for women creatives.

For the week of IWD, we received countless of positive responses from people in the industry, both local and overseas, and were met with many thoughtful messages from our fellow female creatives who showed their appreciation. We even got as far as a newsletter feature on Muse by Clio!

Since then, the repositories have not only continued to grow but recruiters and agencies have been actively looking for talents through the sites. Through this, we hope to close the gender gap in the creative industry, one portfolio at a time.
